School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 5-10-Solid overviews of three major health problems. Each well-organized volume uses brief chapters and many captioned, full-color photographs to describe the history, possible causes, and treatments of the condition. The information is presented in a clear, straightforward, factual style. Asthma also covers the effects of smoking and pollution on asthmatics. Diabetes discusses cultural factors, diet, myths, and the effects of emotional distress. Epilepsy addresses concerns about driving, sports recreation, education, and employment. Each of these fact-packed titles provides a list of organizations to contact for information and advice, a lengthy list for further reading, and a useful glossary. These books are worthy additions for libraries that need material on the topics and will prove helpful to students doing reports.-Lynn K.
